Big time Big Shot!

So I am getting interviewed! Ah the life of a super star... My friend and DG sister from University of Akron has decided to interview me for her blog.

So here are her questions and my answers!

What is your greatest accomplishment since graduating from college? (since we knew each other then!)
Hmmm. This one is tough. I think surviving graduate school (not mention the Masters degree) should be the answer. But I don't think that it is it - that really was more a daily thing than one LARGE thing. I could be romantic and say "getting married" but that is too old fashioned, and not totally my accomplishment (I mean, he did ask...). Finishing my first afghan? Teaching myself to knit?

This is going to seem like a small thing, but I really think my greatest accomplishment is my rose garden. I actually managed to keep one of them alive for more than a year!

What is your best memory from DG days?
Probably the Initiation where I got welcomed my first grand-little into my family. Partly because that was the week I had pink hair and no one could keep a straight face during the ritual. :-)

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years?
In 5 years - still married, possibly with kids, and a better paycheck. In 10 years - still married, hopefully with kids who are not a pain in the butt/have manners/can do laundry and dishes, and a whole lot of memories from fantastic trips. I like to set the bar low.

Is there a question in the universe that you would like to answer or solve? If so, which one?
Why are people mean/stupid? I mean really, we are all human - I don't get the whole "you are different/I want to feel powerful, so I have to persecute you." thing... on both a small throwing-crayons way and a large dropping-bombs way.

And stealing from Ms. Mac, if you had to choose a flavor of ice cream that most fits your personality, what kind do you think you would you be? Feel free to make one up if necessary.
Ooh... another toughie. Probably homemade chocolate chip cookie dough (from my Ben and Jerry's recipe book). Some "raw" stuff, doesn't come together until the end - but always comes through, and decadent.

And that concludes the interview!

Part of the deal was that I continue this by interviewing more people. So here are the rules.

1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions. Be sure you link back to this original post.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Let’s go!
